The English Department at Farleigh aims to give children a thorough grounding in all aspects of literacy, and instil in them a real and lasting appreciation of literature.

Your child will study the mechanics of the language, as well as analysing the way in which writers manipulate words to create effects. Throughout the course of their academic life at Farleigh, your child will study a wealth of authors and texts, try their hand at a wide range of writing styles and learn the importance of clear and effective communication. Enrichment activities, which complement classroom teaching, are also enjoyed by the children. Visiting speakers are regularly invited into school to share tips and tricks with the pupils... and inspire children to create masterpieces of their own!
